The premier source of information for the management of patients with Dysphagia

1. Nutilis Powder combines starch with a gum coating to prevent salivary amylase from breaking down the starch.

2. Food and fluids thickened with standard starch-based thickeners fail to maintain consistency on contact with saliva.

3. Nutilis is the only thickening powder that has clinically proven Salivary Amylase Resistance features for a safer swallow and releases 98% of the fluid and nutrients for the patient.
